Every ETF that has been assessed is given a score and a list factors deemed relevant by Bloomberg. The Traffic Light score is almost completely automated based on underlying Bloomberg data. Therefore, changes to an ETP's data points within the Bloomberg database may affect that ETP's score. ETPs with 1 point or less are given a green light; ETPs with 2-4 points are given a yellow light; and ETPs with 5 points or greater are given a red light.
